These payments help cover the cost of editing, which can run over $100 even for a short story, to hundreds of dollars for a novel. Even small amounts of money can also help me afford more books. Times are tough, and every dollar helps. I can buy a used book often for just $1-4. I greatly appreciate every donation and hope to continue writing and making content worth your money.
